This enriching book explores a theoretical gap in international relations and the role of leader ambition. It presents the idea that some leaders transcend political constraints and as a result, they fundamentally reshape their domestic polity while introducing change to the international system.

Mark Menaldo revisits what is a fundamental question in the study of international politics: the role of statesmanship in foreign affairs. He critiques prevailing realist, rational choice, and personality theories of international relations for conceiving of leadership too narrowly. This book introduces the novel theory of transformative ambition, the idea that some leaders transcend domestic and international political constraints and, as a result, fundamentally reshape their domestic polity while introducing change to the international system. Drawing on Aristotle's idea of magnanimity and Niccolò Machiavelli's lessons to princes through his examples of great founders, the author shows how leaders throughout time accomplish great goals through the force of their vision, character, and practice of statesmanship. Case studies include Otto Von Bismarck, Latin America's autocrats, Woodrow Wilson, Charles de Gaulle, and Pericles.

Providing a critique of international relations theory and a critical examination of how leaders with transformative ambition change domestic and international politics, this book will appeal to leadership, politics and international relations academics and students.

About the Author:

Mark A. Menaldo, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Texas A&M International University, US

Review:

This is a thoughtful and salient contribution to the study of leadership, which suggests the utility of eclectic and multidisciplinary theories for the complex task of analyzing leaders. Must reading for scholars, diplomats, and those aspiring to leadership roles.--R. H. Dekmejian, University of Southern CaliforniaCHOICEconnect

 "This book is deeply challenging to leadership studies, which is a good thing. It is complex, which is a good thing, and it forces us to reexamine some of our core assumptions about leadership. That is another good thing" (Michael A. Genovese, Loyola Chair of Leadership Studies at Loyola Marymount University)
